Would this be a delivery flight, if so, does anybody have any more information?

It has since turned back to Ireland: www.flightradar24.com/2012-01-28/14:00/CTN1234
I guess we'll have to take another look at it in a while to see what that might be about.

If I am not mistaken one of their A320s was flying in Cuba, or somewhere in the Carribean.

It is circling off the west coast of Ireland, crew training? Rather strange

It might be in maintenance at SNN? There is quite some maintenance work done on several aircrafts usually. In that case, this can be a regular test-flight?

Must be that or a test-flight after maintenance? How long does an A320 need to circle and burn off fuel before they land if they departed with full tanks? It looks like the flight originated from SNN.

It's about to land, just made the base turn and is descending through 2000ft.

It's Cuba, but that deal never materialized.
